Oyam district local government has received a 1 billion shillings grant from the German government, to improve water and sanitation project in the district.
The money, channelled through the Northern Uganda Recovery Programme, is aimed at improving the lives of the vulnerable people after the more than 20-year LRA insurgency.
The project will be implemented by Uganda Red Cross Society in collaboration with their German counterparts.
The Uganda Red Cross Society vice-chairman, Dr. Robert Sebunya, opened four boreholes and protected springs.
The German Red Cross project coordinator/water and sanitation for northern Uganda, Harry Van Putten, says Minakulu, Ngai, Otwal and Iceme sub-counties in Oyam district will each get one new borehole.
25 boreholes have been identified for rehabilitation, six spring wells for protection and five ecosan pit latrines to be constructed in schools.
According to Dr Sebunya, the Red Cross will train the community leaders to manage the water sources for sustainability.
He noted that the district had established clean water points at all trading centres to serve a population of more than 300,000.
